Sharing is caring in data science, and this month there are even more ways to share the results of your data science analysis. Quarto 1.3 has multi-format publishing and Confluence publishing, Shiny is on Hugging Face, {pins} offers enhanced functionality with Connect, and tables with {gt} can make your tables look even better. Plus, if you’ve been wanting to try out LLMs for yourself, and share some chat applications with friends, we have a how-to with Shiny for Python. We’re excited to see what and how you share!




Learn. Teach. Share.

And finally:

What do you get when you cross a mosquito with a mountain climber? 

Nothing. You can’t cross a vector and a scalar.
